Norwich winger Elliott Bennett has promised they will battle to retain their Premier League status as they look to bounce back from a poor start to the season.
The Canaries surprised many observers by comfortably surviving in the top-flight last campaign but they are in the relegation zone without a league win.
"People did not think we would stay up last season, but we did. The more people go against this team, the better we seem to be," he said.
"We will come out fighting - like a dog. If you back us into a corner, we will always bite our way out of it.
"If people keep doing that, then brilliant, because we will hopefully prove them wrong, like we did last year."
Norwich return to action against Arsenal on Saturday and Bennett remains in confident mood, despite their current travails.
"We have a great belief and togetherness in the squad, hopefully we can start to put that into three points. We have had a few games which we deserved to win, but that did not happen.
"It is never nice to lose, and you are really disappointed, but you have to clear it out of your mind.
"There are always hard times, like we are going through at the minute. We know it has not been good enough, but are all working hard on the training ground."
